Documents from Chief Keef's probation violation hearing show that the Chicago native inked a mind blowing $6 million deal with Interscope. According to DNA Info, the deal covers three albums, but the 16-year-old rapper won't be able to spend the money until he turns 18.
The documents also show that Chief Keef was given a $440,000 advance that was split into two parts, the second coming when a judge signs off on the deal. Chief Keef was given an additional $300,000 to record his debut, "Finally Rich," but Interscope can nix the deal if it doesn't move 250,000 copies by December 2013. The album has sold 106,000 copies to date.
The $440,000 advance was also included in a deal Interscope made with Keef's label, Glory Boyz Entertainment, which the rapper and his manager, Rovan Manuel, received $180,000 each. Interscope can also drop the deal with GBE if the group's losses exceed $4.5 million.

                             HUH?!!? G-Unit Reunion... Oh Really!??!

The Wall Street Journal's Lee Hawkins chopped it up with The Game and his manager Dontay "Taydoe" Kidd about Game's musical career and his future of potentially becoming a business mogul as well as a highly acclaimed artist. At the 15 minute mark, Taydoe also talked about his hopes of reuniting Game and 50 Cent for business ventures, as it would bring in huge amounts of money for both men.  


Tony Yayo recently spoke to MTV News about the end of G-Unit, explaining that the three Queens rappers let money and ego destroy their group.
"You know what's crazy? It's like when we didn't have any money, things were better," Yayo says. "When everybody got money, it's like things just went downhill, so it's like, I dunno, egos."
"I would love to see a G-Unit reunion. I would love to see me, Banks and 50 definitely onstage," he explained. "When we were broke, and we didn't have a pot to piss in, we were all callin' each other's phones and that's the thing that just upsets me the most, and it makes me just want to say, 'F**k Rap.'"
"Loyalty is my biggest thing. 50 helped all of us eat. We all had mansions; we all had Bentleys; so if Fif is in a bad mood or feels a certain way that day, you just eat that. You learn to judge your friends for who they are," Yayo shared.
